I'm a 40 year old mother of two teens, living common law with my boyfriend 12 years now. By the way he is not the father of my children. My kids are your typical teens, cause stress, grey hair and wrinkles. I have always been on the heavy side (you know like when you were young your mother would say to you, "your not fat hunny your just big boned") My weight never bothered me I had lots of friends, I was on the basketball and volleyball teams in school. I think my lowest weight as an adult was about 170 pounds, and that was after i had my first child. I was comfortable in my life, but i knew i had put on the weight over the last couple of years, had to get bigger pants (size 16) could not fit in my size 12 any more. But we didn't have any scales in our home and i had no interest in knowing my weight, till one day my hubby who has always been thin, had been working out with weights, trying to beef up a bit. Asked for me to pick up some scales as he wanted to monitor his weight. So i did, i didn't get on them right away, but then early one morning before anyone got up, curiosity got the best of me and i decided i needed to know how much i weighed. When i saw the scale read 210 pounds i was discussted and extremely upset with myself, and i swore to myself at that moment enough is enough, i was going to make changes, and changes i made!!!! That was October 2nd now it's November 11 and I'm 21 pounds lighter weighing in at 189 pounds.

Wii Exercise
Its a good start, that is where I started, and did get board and wanted to step it up a notch, now I do the biggest loser which is a fabulous work out (I still do the wii fit) as well I now have an elliptical and im up to 25 min on it. Then I have zumba for the wii and its fun and effective but right now I do that 3 days a week.

Idiot checkout people
Angel Face wrote:
I work in the grocery industry and one thing we are encouraged to do is engage in conversation during check out. The checkers and baggers are suggested to comment on what you purchase...like saying, "That looks good, what are you making?" or "Those shrimp are a great buy today." It can get tiring coming up with things to comment on.

I agree it sounds like a clumsy compliment. It also sounds like it came from the mouth of someone who doesn't know the antioxidant benefits of dark chocolate! Don't sweat the small stuff and enjoy every bite. Smile

Same here I work in the customer service industry and we do a lot of times comment on things people purchase, for me a lot of times it will be somthing ive never tried and would like to hear first hand if its worth trying out, maybe the guy really didnt knoe the added benefits of pure dark chocolate?

what are perfect measurments?
Ok I have to reply to this is there a perfect measurement? Ya I guess if your barbie! Your perfect measurment will be what you want it to be dont you think. What I think and everyone else thinks and what you may think is perfect for you will not be the same. Looking at your profile pic I think you look perfect right there! You are perfect just the way you are.

Marvelous read I thank you a milion times over. Since I started this journey to become healthier (not diet) this is a complete lifestyle change for me. Have been learning as I go and you cant emagine how much this helps me mentaly, even thou my husband pretty much tells me the same thing when I get into a rant about the plateaus an the odd gains on the scales. I unusually start psychoanalizing everything I have done where did I go wrong and generaly he ends up being right I get the big drop, but silly me it wil happen again the plateau comes or a pound or two gain and I lose it. I will try to not let the day to day fluctuations and flat lines get to me. Thank you again for your post.
